Vimeo app for iOS with built-in video editor now available

Vimeo, the video site that seems like it's meant to perpetually stand in YouTube's shadow, has released its first application for iOS today. In short, the app brings the full Vimeo experience to your mobile device -- with a decent video editor thrown in for good measure. Vimeo for iOS lets you watch, upload, manage, and edit videos. You can watch your previously uploaded videos and easily...

Vimeo adds Couch Mode 10-foot interface, mimics YouTube's Leanback

YouTube's Leanback isn't the only big screen TV game in town anymore -- Vimeo's gone and launched its own TV viewing experience, cunningly called, Couch Mode. As the name implies, it's all about watching from the comfort of your sofa, using a 10-foot interface, letting you get on with enjoying interesting videos, and not having to squint to read a tiny UI. Couch Mode still lets you do all...

Three simple ways to watch YouTube (and other) videos with no distractions

It turns out people don't like clutter. Surprise! Not that YouTube's interface is all that cluttered, but sometimes I just want to watch my video without having to see it in full screen. Well, it turns out that there's a whole genre of websites which specialize in removing all the crud and leaving the video: in other words, they generate spartan pages with your video embedded right into them, on...

ASCIImeo lets you watch Vimeo in ASCII (and it's retro-awesome)

It seems like HD is all the rage these days. A friend of mine recently did a month-long market research before putting down a sizable lump of cash for a 47-inch behemoth. And yes, it really is very impressive. Still, sometimes I find myself wanting to go back to simpler times; back when men were real men, and ASCII animations were all the rage. Why I remember back in the good old BBS and...

Vimeo introduces HTML5 video mode, Chrome and Safari users rejoice

Hate Flash? Love Vimeo? Today's your lucky day, because Vimeo has introduced a new HTML5 video player, making almost all of its videos available in H.264. For those not familiar with H.264, a quick recap: this is one of the formats vying to become the new standard for HTML's video tag. If you watch videos on an iPhone, you've already seen it in action. Okay: HTML5 video, so what? Well, for one...

Vimeo gets even more mobile friendly

Smartphones are taking over! We certainly all knew that by now. Vimeo has decided to hop on board and start making their service a little mobile-friendly. A while back, Vimeo announced that their site was compatible with both the iPhone and even Android phones. Yesterday, they took it a step further and announced that users can now quickly and easily create a "mobile version" of their video...

Vimeo announces a Desktop Uploader and improved stats

Video sharing site Vimeo has just announced some major improvements, including a Desktop Uploader and new, more detailed statistics pages. The desktop app will offer a lot of features that Vimeo's web interface doesn't, like uploading multiple videos at once, and pausing/resuming your uploads. Vimeo hopes the Desktop Uploader will also increase stability and avoid timeouts on large uploads. The...

Vimeo bans gaming videos, starts debate among users

Popular video hosting site Vimeo has announced that they will no longer allow videos of video games on the site. Specifically, they're going to be deleting "game walk-throughs, game strategy videos, depictions of player vs player battles, raids, fraps, or any other video gaming videos that simply depict individuals playing a video game." As of September 1st, all videos that fall under that...

Where web sites come from: Paper mockups of Flickr, Twitter, etc.

While it's nice to think that anyone can create an awesome web page or desktop application just by typing a few lines of code into a computer, the truth is good design is good design, whether it's sketched out on a computer or on a piece of paper. Deeplinking has put together a pictorial showing some of the paper sketches that led to popular applications like Twitter, Vimeo's profile pages,...

Pownce adds RSS, video embedding

Pownce, the social network that's all about sharing with your friends, just made sharing a whole lot easier. Now you can grab an RSS feed of all your incoming Pownce messages, for more convenient reading. This is cool, but RSS is par for the course on social networks these days. It would be bigger news if Pownce still didn't have it. What is actually quite unique about Pownce is the variety of...

The Squadcast 09 - Making Video for the Web

Web video is hot and getting easier and easier to use. Grant and Christina talk to Vimeo's dalas verdugo about techniques to make web video look its best and garner attention. The Squadcast's "The Five" takes a look at Download Squad's five favorite applications/web services for editing, exporting and uploading web video. Download this episode (mp4) (iPod, iPhone, Nano, AppleTV, Quicktime, VLC)...

Vimeo launches HD streaming video player

Online video site Vimeo has just launched a new "high definition" video player. Essentially, if you upload a video with a 1280x720 (also known as 720p) resolution, Vimeo will transcode that video and play it back at its native resolution. Now, this doesn't mean you're seeing the same video quality you'd get from an HDTV signal or a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD disc. Vimeo's still compressing the heck out...

Netscape video is slick

I have used (and still do) a bunch of video upload services, all the usuals, YouTube, Vimeo, Uncut, Google, and some unusual ones as well. I must say I can't get over how simple and elegant the simplicity of Netscape video is. Of course by now I'm sure you know that this blog, and Netscape are owned by AOL, so some of you are saying, "geez, what a cheap plug," but it's not. Netscape makes video...

Video sharing quality compared

YouTube is the de facto standard for video sharing on the web, but there are a lot of other options out there. But other features aside, which one offers the best video quality? While Life Goggles doesn't actually answer that question for you, it does gives you side-by-side comparisons of eight major video sharing sites' embedded players so you can judge for yourself. I've been squinting at them...

Vimeo's Flash player controller rocks - why is everyone else's so horrible?

I found this really intriguing video via kottke's remaindered links of a photographer who took a pic of himself every day for six years, and then threw all the images together into a movie. But this post isn't about the cool video - it's about Vimeo's Flash player controller. After pressing play, mouseover the video again and note the timeline controller that pops up. Now click anywhere in that...
